It’s ‘Unarguable’ We Have Improved Power Supply ‘With Less Resources’, Says Fashola

Channels Television
Updated December 23, 2018

The Minister of Power, Works, and Housing, Mr Babatunde Fashola, says the Muhammadu Buhari administration has improved power supply in the last three years.

He told Channels Television on Sunday that although the government has yet to completely fulfil the promise made in 2015, even those criticising the present administration would not argue the improvement in the power sector.

“We set very high aspirations and we will get there, and what I am saying today is that we have improved on what we met, and that is unarguable and unimpeachable,” Fashola said during his appearance on Sunday Politics.

He added, “And we have done so in shorter time and with less resources. Let their (the critics) sympathisers continue to weaponise the challenges they created but the truth is that we are the ones solving the problems that we met.

“That’s why we sought the office because we think we are better than them and we have proven that we are.”

It's 'Unarguable' We Have Improved Power 'With Less Resources', Says Fashola
Mr Babatunde Fashola speaks during an interview on Sunday Politics on December 23, 2018.
The minister explained that there was a need to invest in power, whether on the part of the government or the private sector or from both sides if the sector must develop.

According to him, it is important for the people to compare where they are to where they are coming from, and the promises made by the present administration.

Fashola revealed that upon his assumption of duty in 2015, he set out a clear agenda for the ministry that it would first seek to achieve incremental power, saying it was already yielding results.

“We are producing more power than what we met; we are transmitting more power than what we met, and we are distributing more power than what we met,” he said.

He added, “I met 4,000MW; we have added three (thousand) more – 1,000MW per year. Our raw rate is a thousand megawatts (MW) every year.

“Since I came, we have completed projects they didn’t complete, we have evacuated 800 containers they left at the port; that’s mediocre administration… they didn’t administer a government.”

The minister, however, admitted that the numbers were not as important as the experience of Nigerians who were the consumers.

He noted that the government has not gotten to its destination yet, but the people can attest that power supply has improved in the last three years.

“Nigerians will tell you, on the average, that they are spending less money on buying diesel, they are spending less money on buying petrol for their generators.”

While the people still spend money on fuel in the case of a power outage, Fashola insisted that the case was not the same compared to the previous administration.

He stressed states like Kebbi were getting about 24 hours of power supply because there was a local arrangement in place to ensure people pay for the electricity consumed.

The minister added that he got a report from some residents of Maiduguri, the Borno State capital recently that the government should reduce the “24-hour” power supply in their area because they cannot afford to pay for it.

On power supply off the national grid, he said, ”We have been innovative, we are targeting market, we are targeting universities, we are promoting individuals and businesses to get their own energy under the existing regulations that we have championed.”

“So, we have a mini-grid policy … and I see a very clear path to solving this problem. If I didn’t, I wouldn’t remain.”


And the tariff rose what figure in 2014 to what figure in 2018?

Buhari ordered his immediate dismissal from civil service. I was kind of wondering what equally stopped him from ordering his immediate arrest since he was on EFCC's wanted list.
Politics / Re: APC Membership Hits 15.2 Million, Vows To Win 2019 Elections by mescapee: 5:09pm On Sep 17, 2017
The All Progressives Congress has stated that its current membership is over 15.2 million. The party boasted of its 'growing membership', expressing strong confidence that it will sweep the 2019 elections and retain the presidency.

PoliticsNGR learned that the Deputy national chairman of the APC(North), Shuaibu Lawal, made this statement when he received the Deputy director of the Research Office, International Department of the Communist Party of China(IDCPC), Dong Weihua at the party's national secretariat, Abuja.

He said: "I make bold to say that there is no other option before Nigerians other than the APC. We inflicted a very big injury on the former ruling party in 2015.

During the campaigns, we realized our own method benefitted us because our manner of campaign was devoid of any hate speech. Theirs was full of hate speech and Nigerians clearly saw the difference.

The APC currently has 15.2 million members. The eyes of Nigerians are open. They know who is sincere about things. Nigerians know which party to choose when elections come in 2019. So I can assure you we are very confident in 2019 for a re-election."


Keep dreaming.

That doesn't translate to voting strength.
Politics / Re: Operation Python Dance: Charly Boy Writes President Buhari Open Letter by mescapee: 3:19pm On Sep 17, 2017
Buhari has not lived to expectations of many Nigerians, but I believe there are forces designed to frustrate his administration including the Biafran agitation which was hitherto non-existent or rather, low-keyed.

His stupidity, body language, divisive tendencies and management of the situation contributed immensely to level the Biafran agitation has reached today.

Yes, the agitation has been low-keyed because previous governments ignored the group totally. Instead of towing same line, he chose to ignite the flame the more.

Recall when he won the election, the eastern region were not happy. When the previous administration won the penultimate election, the north were not happy. Infact there were deadly riots in the north owning to comments attributed to the sitting president.

The management of the two scenarios clearly shows the difference between education and illiteracy.

NO SOAP/ SWEET WORDS CAN WASH JONATHAN CLEAN FROM THE EVIL SOME OF HIS MINISTERS COMMITED UNDER HIS WATCH. Like in football now, if a team performs well the coach will be hailed/praised and if the team does otherwise the coach will be blamed and even sent parking if the poor performance continues. This is exactly what jonathan got in the last election. TO ME, JONATHAN REMAINS THE WORST PRESIDENT NIGERIA HAS EVER HAD. A president that approved documents without checking or going through them.

Under the watch of the saint, power failed totally, ministers were grossly incompetent, under performers and brazenly bold liars.

Under the watch of the saint, a whole budget went missing, new words which never existed in our vocabulary like 'budget padding' came up and is still in existence. Corruption has reached the highest heavens in the era of the saint. Maybe you may have forgotten the amount budgeted to chase only rats from Aso Rock.

The most annoying part is that under the watch of the saint, intellectuals (especially his ministers and Special Assistants) were reduced to nothing in their bid to cover his under-performance.

So So Annoying.

A prudent President.

In today's edition of let us test how intelligent the wailers are. We will give them the opportunity to bring some ideas forward on how this 2.6 Trillion can be used to develop Nigeria.

The people on Nairaland complaining about Buhari,share one thing in common. And that is any lack of objectivity.

It usually starts with one always ,who will lead the way with their childish taunts of how does this help the economy?then another will say,how does this take us out of recession?then you can tell the least intelligent ones among them,by the "It is a Propaganda" chant.

So,now is the opportunity for you Criers to show us how intelligent you guys are.

The Government has just realized 2.6 Trillion from the TSA,so the wailers should educate us on how the money can be used,in a way that it can make an impact in the Society.

So, you are good in saving but you are not good in knowing what to use it for OR on what to invest on?

Hmmmmmmmmmm!!!! Then keep saving!!!

And what is the rationale behind having so much money within and still planning to borrow from outside?

Politics / Re: Recession: FG Releases Fresh N350bn To Boost Economy by mescapee: 4:22pm On Sep 16, 2016
simple mathematics!!!!!!

420bn + 350bn = 770bn

and not 760bn

10bn is a lot of money to be miscalculated.

By the way, 350bn for capital projects was in the news earlier on this year. Or am I missing something?

“One of the sectors we spent the money on, of course the largest has been power, works and housing. Quite a lot has gone on defence because we need to rebuild the credibility of our army to continue in their efforts in the new phase, interior, transport.” Operation Crocodile Tears

The minister said out of the N350bn, the government would be setting aside N60bn for the implementation of the social intervention programme.
Meaning 290bn is actually earmarked for capital projects.

Hmmmmmmmmmmm. People Deceiving People!!

She said the implementation of social safety schemes was vital as it would enable the government provide direct cash to vulnerable Nigerians. 60bn for vulnerable Nigerians? Madam Minister, please define the "vulnerable" in your sentence.

The fall in global oil price is a US non-lethal strategy to curb global terrorism. The idea is to starve extremist groups of the badly needed funds for terror operations and logistics without confrontation.

The 49th Law of Power hence is "cut your enemy supply line".

They both said same thing. The President seemed upset. He showed no empathy. After speaking he didn't move towards the parents nor look in their direction. He Simply dropped The Microphone and walked away. They expected the typical Nigerian way of comforting those who are grieving and didn't get it.

Oby's was very diplomatic in addressing the situation.

Yesufu tried her best to be diplomatic.

Now I will like to see someone (a concerned parent) who will be factual.

Cos I still need to know the details of what transpired (reason: that's why journalists were asked out of the venue.) grin grin grin
